Make Money with a Blog

If you are looking for ways to turn your hobby blog into a money-making blog, we want to share with you the ULTIMATE list of advertising networks and affiliate programs because monetizing your blog is easier when the product matches your audience.

1) Join Ad Networks.

Join these ad networks and post the offers that relate to your readers.Through these companies, you can find offers from major retailers like Target and Walmart and smaller companies like Answer in Genesis and Zulily.

Escalate Media



Commission Junction

Impact Radius


Glitter Network

2) Use Ad Space Networks.

In my opinion, these are the ultimate resources for passive income.

Essentially, you dedicate space on your blog to these companies, put in the necessary code to make the ads function (which is relatively easy), and then let it go. Sure, you can tweak what you place and where but there is nothing to repeatedly change.


Google Adsense


3) Sign up for review networks.

Review networks have a list of clients they seek to match with bloggers for sponsored posts and social media campaigns. The application process can vary. Some networks are set up like a forum while others list their needs like a job board.

One of the most lucrative ways to make money blogging is by creating and selling your own products.

Sell digital products, like ebooks, podcasts, and webinars.

Offer a service, such as consulting or design.

Design logos to go on physical products.

Market ad space or sponsored content on your blog.

6) Sign up for Affiliate Programs.
